When you try to access HP ILO2 console via some new version of OpenSSH you have error.
For OpenSSH v.6
# ssh ilouser@iloserver

Solution: add option -o MACs=hmac-sha1 to ssh:

# ssh -o MACs=hmac-sha1 ilouser@iloserver
ilouser@iloserver's password:

For OpenSSH v.7
# ssh ilouser@iloserver

# ssh -o KexAlgorithms=diffie-hellman-group1-sha1 -o MACs=hmac-sha1 ilouser@iloserver
